Nearly two dozen people were reportedly killed and at least 22 others, including a four-month-old baby, were wounded on Saturday after a gunman opened fire inside a Walmart in El Paso.
Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick says the suspect, a 21-year-old male, has been taken into custody alive and there was no longer danger to the public.
El Paso police say that only one suspect is in custody and that they don’t believe any other suspects are outstanding right now, according to spokesperson Sgt. Robert Gomez.
Washington Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli posted the name and photos of the alleged El Paso mass shooter, sourced to law enforcement, “A law enforcement official in El Paso told me the Walmart shooter is in custody. Patrick Crusius of Dallas. Just turned 21 years old this week.”
Police released surveillance images of alleged shooter Patrick Crusius entering the Walmart store, holding a long gun and wearing ear protection muffs that are commonly used in target shooting. The images were published by KTSM and shared across social media. The young man in the images wore cargo pants and a black shirt, matching the description of the El Paso shooter that witnesses had shared.
